Despite starting out as a powerful fusion of German and American speed metal, Ripper continues progressing into Voivod and Pestilence territory with their latest EP, Paranormal Waves, released digitally on March 30, 2020.4 Comments
Chilean speed metal revivalists Ripper tear into their fusion of Destruction and older Sepultura that makes for an energy-infused listen full of the high-contrast riff changes that defined the speed metal genre. While this continues the past influences, it shows the band developing more of their own voice while remembering to cue in enough genre conventions to address the nostalgia crowd.No Comments

Ripper and Entrench, who made our lists of The Best Underground Metal of 2014 and 2016, are planning a European tour and need to get some gigs to knock headbangers on their backs. From Ripper’s Funbook page:
